Silja Graupe
Beyond Bologna

Silja Graupe is Professor of Economics and Philosophy and Vice President of Cusanus Hochschule in Bernkastel-Kues, Germany, an innovative university she co-founded in 2014, dedicated to promoting creativity and social responsibility. Her field of research involves a critical review and reformulation of standard economics and economic education. Her newest publication "Persuasion and Propaganda in Economic Education" provides an analysis of forms of persuasion found in standard economics textbooks which contradict criteria of scientific-objective knowledge acquisition and as a consequence fail to fulfill the accepted standard for education. Her teaching and research are equally dedicated to the renewal of economics as a reflective and responsible science.
